World's first remote air traffic control tower to open in Sweden | GizMag.com | networking people and companies | Scoop.it
In a world first, air traffic controllers armed with a suite of high-tech video and sensor equipment have been authorized to direct flights over 100 km (61 mi) away at an airport in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. The technology, developed by Saab, offers alternatives to consolidate smaller airfields with smaller budgets under one control, and provides options for training, crisis situations, and tower maintenance or refurbishing.Designed to meet the current needs of airport control, but scale in the future, the Saab Remote Tower System (RTS) has two components. First, the airstrip itself is installed with a tall, repositionable bank of high-res cameras, microphones, signal light guns and meterological sensors.All that information is sent to the Remote Tower Center (RTC), where human operators direct air traffic as they might traditionally, but over a great distance from the airfield. The RTC can also be designed to resemble more of a high-tech media room, with a 360 degree LCD or projected image live from the airfield, instead of 360 degrees of windows.The Swedish RTC has been approved to direct air traffic for two remote airports in Sweden, with full operation expected to begin in autumn this year. Theoretically the system allows smaller airports to upgrade their towers and by efficiently grouping multiple airfields together in one remote control center, airfields can avoid limiting flights or closing completely.Click headline to read more--

It is important to remember that ambition is a choice. Success cannot be forced upon those who do not seek it. Great leaders must choose to lead on their own accord.

They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Can a Co-CEO Structure Work?

Can a Co-CEO Structure Work? | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Putting more than one person in the corner office has a checkered history. But it may be the kind of leadership style our times increasingly demand.


History and corporate lore has made the singular CEO into America’s unofficial folk hero: Behold, one magnificent polymath who sets the vision, knows the business inside and out, rallies the troops, and, if things go sour, nobly accepts the blame. Such leaders aren’t doing it all alone, of course—they distribute responsibility among VPs. But the idea of sharing power at the top has a way of seeming structurally unsound. Think about it: Jack Welch or Steve Jobs or Meg Whitman letting somebody else take some of the reins is so anathema to our concept of leadership that it has a vaguely un-American ring to it.

To Create Real Change, Leadership Is More Important Than Authority

To Create Real Change, Leadership Is More Important Than Authority | networking people and companies | Scoop.it
Aspiring young executives dream of climbing the ladder in order to gain more authority. Then they can make things happen and create the change that they believe in. Senior executives, on the other hand, are often frustrated by how little power they actually have.The problem is that while authority can compel action it does little to inspire belief. Only leadership can do that. It’s not enough to get people to do what you want, they have to also want what you want or any change is bound to be short lived.That’s why change management efforts commonly fail. All too often, they are designed to carry out initiatives that come from the top. When you get right down to it, that’s really the just same thing as telling people to do what you want, albeit in slightly more artful way. To make change really happen, it doesn’t need to be managed, but empowered.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 1, 1:59 PM

There is a difference between authoritarian and authority. Authority is about authoring authority in the words and actions. It is artful; whereas authoritarian is about management and technique which are imposed. We give people something which is empowers them rather than engaging them in their work, their calling.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 2, 5:03 AM

(From the article): Control is an illusion and always has been an illusion.  It is a Hobbesian paradox that we cannot enforce change unless change has already occurred.  The lunatics always run the asylum, the best we can do as leaders is empower them to run it right.

 

And that’s why change always requires leadership rather than authority.  Respectable people always prefer incumbency to disruption.  Only misfits are threatened by the status quo.  So if you want to create real change, it is not power and influence that you need, but those who seek to overthrow it.

Neurons get activated by diversity, and by a change in the routine of activity and thinking. Wrestling with an opinion different from your own, bending the mind to see an opposite view, going away for a holiday, taking a long walk, reading an unconnected book, listening to music, or even sleeping over a problem - all these get the neurons firing and colliding to provide new combinations of thoughts.

The Secret Power Of The Generalist - And How They'll Rule The Future

The Secret Power Of The Generalist - And How They'll  Rule The Future | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

We’ve become a society that’s data rich and meaning poor. A rise in specialists in all areas - science, math, history, psychology - has resulted in tremendous content. But how valuable is that knowledge without context?

 

Despite the corporate world’s insistence on specialization, the workers most likely to come out on top are generalists - but not just because of their innate ability to adapt to new workplaces, job descriptions or cultural shifts. Instead, according to writer Carter Phipps, author of Evolutionaries generalists will thrive in a culture where it’s becoming increasingly valuable to know “a little bit about a lot.”


Meaning that where you fall on the spectrum of specialist to generalist could be one of the most important aspects of your personality - and your survival in an ever-changing workplace.

Love this post - having been an extreme generalist for most of my life has enabled me to create new businesses and further  broaden my knowledge....but over the aa LAST 5 years I've dived DEEP into the things I'm MOST passionate about. Now I'm risen to the surface  as one of the few who can take you BROAD & DEEP....

 

I guess that makes me a SPECIALIST GENERALIST by nature. That's what has finally empowered me to call myself a TEACHER, MENTOR & INSPIRATIONAL BUSINESS COACH.

How Renaissance Men And Women Think

How Renaissance Men And Women Think | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Do you think like a polymath? Here's a quick test: are you more of a rational or experiential/intuitive thinker?

 

If you cringed as you read the question and thought to yourself, "I love constantly shifting between both modes of thought," then you're on the polymath path.

 

According to psychologist Seymour Epstein's cognitive-experiential self-theory, humans have two parallel but interacting modes of information processing. The rational system is analytic, logical, abstract and requires justification via logic and evidence. In contrast, the experiential system is holistic, affective, concrete, experienced passively, processes information automatically and is self-evidently valid (that is, experience alone is enough for belief).

The Beginning and the End - The Meaning of Life in a Cosmological Perspective

The Beginning and the End - The Meaning of Life in a Cosmological Perspective | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions: Does our universe have a beginning and an end, or is it cyclic? Are we alone in the universe? What is the role of intelligent life, if any, in cosmic evolution? Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe's deepest mysteries. Vidal shows how the fine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations. He also explores whether natural or artificial selection could hold on a cosmic scale. In perhaps his boldest hypothesis, he argues that signs of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are already present in our astrophysical data. His conclusions invite us to see the meaning of life, evolution, and intelligence from a novel cosmological framework that should stir debate for years to come.
